all right people, I have a MY00 SLK200K FL, I'm in love with the car. I have done many DIY fixes with the help of this GREAT forum, including front roof cylinder replacement, rainproofing, dash-lights replacement, MAF cleaning and many more...She is in perfect condition right now....
However, I noticed that I have a resident problem since day one. I have wind noise starting at about 60 mph, feels like coming from rear window area. I was thinking that this problem was because of rear window alignment but having other priorities to fix I always delayed to fix it.
Yesterday I decided to fix it. Got all my gear ready according to WIS instruction sheet. Rear windows seemed to be ok as both were 6-7 mm far away from the front windows (trim to front window). But one problem was probably the inclination of the rear windows. I seemed to me that the upper parts were not flush level with the fronts. Before removing the trim and fixing this I decided to fill the gap between windows to check if alignment was the real issue.
Guess what. After I filled the right side gap (with some kind of gum) I went to a test drive but the loud wind noise was still there. No changes at all.
Has anyone solved this problem? I am sure its something else making the wind noise. The rear lid closes just fine and seems aligned. But where that noise comes from?!?
my only consolation is, spring is there and the top will be down for a while...
your help is appreciated
